Beyonce’s new surprise self titled album is set to blow away the competition.
The project sold an incredible 550,000 copies in just two days, according to Billboard. It moved 430,000 units on Friday (December 13), the first day of it’s release, and then another 120,000 on Saturday.
The album will be the singer’s fifth consecutive disc to hit No. 1 in it’s opening week. With sales expected to soar over 600,000, the new album will be the highest debut by a female artist on the Billboard 200 since Taylor Swift’s Red, which sold 1.2 millioncopies in 2012.
